Shannon Goins is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) who relocated to Albuquerque in June 2018 from the greater Phoenix area. Originally from Little Rock Arkansas, Shannon begin her training in 2013 in the field of massage therapy.

Her advanced training includes Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) and Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), Assisted Lymphatic Therapy (ALT), Medical Massage,Energetic Myofascial Release, and CranioSacral Therapy.  

Shannon received her Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) training from KLOSE Training. Her Medical Massage and Myofascial Release specialty certifications were earned at the Southwest Institute for Healing Arts in Tempe, AZ.  Assisted Lymphatic Training was completed with RightWay Health & Wellness in Canton, Georgia.  CranioSacral Training has been obtained through the Southwest Institute for Healing Arts in Tempe, AZ and through Cranio Sacral School of the Masters in Tigers, New Mexico.

It was during her training and Medical Massage that she fell in love with Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) work. To that end, she pursued the respected CLT (Certified Lymphedema Therapist) certification to help people who suffer from lymphedema.  

In June of 2018 she became certified in Electro-Lymphatic Drainage (also called "Assisted Lymphatic Drainage") which uses a device called the XP2 that effectively releases stagnated lymph.

The CLT certification proved to be the ideal advanced training avenue because it built on the foundations of Oncology Massage, Elder Massage, and adaptive massage for various medical conditions that constituted the core of her medical massage training.

"My own mother suffered from lymphedema following a double radical mastectomy in 1992, but she was given little to no information about the condition. As a result, she suffered severe depression and social anxiety until she passed in 2013.

Even now, so if you medical professionals are well-trained and lymphedema risk, prevention, and treatment. I want to serve as a resource for people to get them that information and quality treatment that makes a difference and how they feel and feel about themselves.

Since becoming a CLT, I have learned that lymphatic drainage doesn't just apply to people with lymphedema. It can help people who have had surgery, who have Lyme disease, Alzheimer's, surgery, etc. It can also be used to enhance athletic performance and improve how we looking feel through draining a puffy face to providing a powerful detoxifying effect.

While Shannon works on many types of swelling, her practice in Albuquerque has attracted a great number of plastic surgery clients.  She regularly works on people who have had liposuction, BBL's, tummy tucks, breast augmentations / reductions and reconstruction to reduce their pain and swelling and speed their healing process.

My main objective when working with clients, no matter what brings them to my office, is to have them leave feeling significantly better than when they walked in. Making a difference in the lives of others is the most rewarding thing that I can do."  - Shannon Goins

Shannon's training also includes PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) Therapy.  PEMF therapy is available at Pain & Swelling Solutions.

Experience
Bodywork

Certified Lymphedema Therapist

Completed 135 hour training for Lymphedema Therapy with KLOSE Training. This training included advanced Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Techniques, bandaging, and garment fitting for both upper and lower body. The KLOSE CLT program also teaches in-depth anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system, as well as thorough information regarding co-conditions (co-morbidities) such as Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), diabetes, etc. to ensure that clients of therapists graduating from the program will be treated safely.

Certified Myofascial Release Therapist

Completed 100 hour certification training in Energetic Myofascial Release at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.

Certified Medical Massage Therapist

Completed 100 hour certification program in Medical Massage at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.

Certified Assisted Lymphatic Therapist

Assisted Lymphatic Therapy (ALT) utilizes a device that electronically excites three noble gasses contained in hand-blown glass wands. When placed on the skin, the device transmits ions that break up coagulated lymph proteins and change it from a jello-like state to more of a water-like state, thereby permitting it to flow freely in the lymphatic system. The procedure is painless and highly effective, especially in complex lymphatic cases.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Tiffany on Jul 10
Shannon explains the lymphatic system and process thoroughly before starting the treatment and makes you feel at ease. She checked on me later in the day to see how I was feeling which was really thoughtful.

Specific responses tuned into my particular condition. Alternative options also discussed.
by Meriah on Jun 02
Shannon was AWESOME and aided in me healing a lot faster than anticipated. With a lot of confusion surrounding lymphatic massages out there and what was right for me, Shannon was very knowledgeable, informative and made me feel confident in choosing her for my post-surgical massages. I’d recommend her 1000 times over!

Shannon was amazing! Pro active in helping me set up new ways to support my chronic lymphedema! Generous with time and great follow through! Very caring and professional at the same time! Her knowledge exceeds 30 years of treatment from many therapists! She is open and willing to help me even though I live in Maine! I will return to her often! She has made my traveling manageable! The office space is lovely and a all round wonderful experience! She is very fast to respond to my every need!
